With this review, I'm a bit late to the party. There has already been a whole lot said about the new Netflix Dave Chappelle special Sticks and Stones, and my opinion probably isn't needed. But, I'm going to throw it out there anyway.
I cry. I cry openly. I've always done that. I've always felt a wide range of emotions and expressed them freely. I am a complex person with many facets. I am not some robot that has been programmed by "society" to think and act only one or two ways. And I am a man.
What the frickin' heck is going on now?? Apparently, the cool "woke" kids in the UK have decided that it is a good idea to pelt politicians they don't like with frickin' milkshakes! How did this get to be a thing... and why?
Alabama just passed strict new anti-abortion laws that would essentially make it illegal to have an abortion except in very few situations. And if you happen to be a doctor that performs an abortion, you could end up going to jail for a whopping 99 years. Heck, this law is so restrictive that the ordinarily ultra-conservative televangelist Pat Robertson has basically said, "Whoa, Alabama, don't you think you went a little too far here?" You know things might be out of hand when even ol' Pat is wincing at the punitive measures being put into place by anti-abortionists.
After the introduction of a so-called "heart beat bill" in the US state of Georgia that would prohibit women from having an abortion as soon as a fetus has a heartbeat, pro-choice folks are rightly upset. This is a move that would restrict women from getting an abortion after a time period when a women might not even realize she is pregnant. This latest move by a Republican-led state government reflects a growing war against abortion by other "Red States." If there is one thing that Republicans don't seem to like, it's the freedom to have an abortion.
I don't know about you, but I must laugh at people online sometimes. Now, assuredly, they laugh about me as well, but that's something to analyse at a different time.
